“If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?Luke 16, Parable of the Shrewd Manager

Timeless Truth from the Treasury of Scripture

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

— Matthew 6:20-21, Luke 12:33-34

Parable of the Shrewd Manager

True Riches in Christ’s Faithfulness, in the Few in a little
inasmuch as the multitude!

“If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?Luke 16

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?” — Luke 16

Parable of the Rich Fool

What’s at the end of our lives?

“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own all the things you have prepared?’ So it is for the one who continues to store up and hoard possessions for himself, and is not rich [in his relationship] toward God.” — Luke 12:20-21

Life is more than food, the body more than clothes, and God’s Word and wisdom so much more meaningful than money! — Luke 12:23

Jesus says “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

— Luke 12:15

10% of Christ’s teachings concern the topic of money.

There is a purpose Jesus spoke about money so often.

There is a reason “Thou Shall Not Covet” is the Tenth commandment of the Old Testament [Deuteronomy 5:21, Exodus 20:17Matthew 5:27-28]

Why, God? Lord, lend us Your Wisdom!

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. [Psalm 90:12]

Today how many of you would consider yourself content or well-off with your current financial situation?

Would you consider yourself to be a somewhat greedy person?

Of those of you who say that they are “content” (not greedy), how many of you are currently in pursuit of more things?

Which of the 3 statements describes you?

I’m willing to bet many of you would say, “I’ve got too much!”

And you’re in the process of getting more — What sense does that make?

How then can we truly say ourselves satisfied and count our hearts content with what all we have?

Indeed, inside all of us do we feel a deep desire, a need, an internal struggle to pursue a higher calling, something greater than the only offerings of this world!

Abiding within each alive and breathing soul is a God-shaped vacuum in our hearts, being born again as children in the image of Christ’s creation.

He has hidden within our hearts eternity — the treasure chests of everlasting life [Luke 12:34, Ecclesiastes 3:11, Psalm 119:11].

Imagine! Eternity.

His Holy Word and Wisdom, His perfect presence, power, precious and priceless Truth, His hidden treasure which is the gift of His Son Jesus Christ who has everlasting love living inside each of us forever.

All money’s anxiety and attachment to negativity

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs”
– 1st Timothy 6:10

have at its root cause [1st Timothy 6:10] an eternal problem of sin nature originating inwardly from a critical condition of the heart — all money issues at their core are actually cutting heart issues, God and Christ issues, in their inception [Psalm 51:1Jeremiah 17:9Matthew 5:27-28James 1:15].

Cure in Christ: Soul’s Solution in Salvation!

God’s Sovereignty is our soul’s solution and sole sufficiency, the Wisdom of Jesus fulfills our soul and makes it whole!

Christ heals the holes of our hearts by entering into us with His Holy Spirit [Matthew 5:17-20], endowing us with His amazing grace, awesome power, all-abiding, all-encompassing, and almighty love. Allelujah!

Jesus is our sole sufficiency: Jesus is the joy of our hearts! Christ is our completeness and contentment! [2nd Corinthians 12:9; Philippians 4:13, 19; Nehemiah 8:10]

Tragedy starts when we fill the room and emptiness in our hearts, “broken cisterns that cannot hold water,” [Jeremiah 2:13] with just stuff, placeholders, possessions, and the other temporary material things of this world…

True treasure then begins with an accurate understanding, a reverent, awesome [Hebrews 12:28-29], high and holy view of God:

The Fear of the Lord.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge

— Proverbs 1:7a

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 9:10

I will praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this full very well.

Psalm 139:14

Praying in peace and humility before the Lord, I ask each of you and for my own good’s sake to:

  1. Receive the wisdom and the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit Who [Ephesians Receive wisdom and comprehension, knowledge and understanding, might and strength from the Holy Spirit [Ephesians 3:14]
  2. Help us put off past attachments for any material possessions that carry us away from Christ Jesus the One True God [Matthew 4:10-11, Deuteronomy 6:13Isaiah 43:18-20, Hebrews 2:1] and
  3. Heal our hearts by turning our eyes toward eternity, as we ascend up unto Mount Zion, City of the Living God and into His Holy Kingdom of Heaven, in our souls’ spiritual pilgrimage to finally receive the prize that God has called us heavenward in the Name of Christ Jesus! [Philippians 3:14]

Let us close together in the Lord’s prayer

“Pray, then, in this way:

‘Our Father, who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.

‘Your kingdom come,
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

‘And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors.

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Amen.

— Matthew 6:9-13
